Row spills over in pub­lic

A dis­pute be­tween two women got so heated that a judge had to in­ter­vene as they hurled abuse at each other in court.

The women are on trial af­ter a fight broke out over the use of el­e­va­tors.

Shar­jah Mis­de­meanour Court was told that a Jor­da­nian woman, in her 40s, al­legedly in­sulted an Emi­rati, in her 20s. The ar­gu­ment al­legedly started when the Emi­rati woman and her fam­ily were us­ing four el­e­va­tors, leav­ing no func­tion­ing el­e­va­tor free for any­one else.

How­ever, the quar­rel es­ca­lated when the Jor­da­nian By Nawal Al Ramahi woman be­came an­gry and punched the Emi­rati woman in the face.

The Emi­rati woman told the judge that the Jor­da­nian cursed at her, called her names and as­saulted her.

When the Emi­rati woman threat­ened to tell po­lice about the in­ci­dent, the Jor­da­nian woman told her that she didn’t care be­cause she is mar­ried to an Emi­rati.

In court, the Jor­da­nian woman de­nied the charges of in­sult­ing, curs­ing and phys­i­cally abus­ing the Emi­rati, claim­ing that the Emi­rati fab­ri­cated most of the story.

The two women in­sulted each other dur­ing the trial and the judge or­dered them to be silent.

The Jordan woman tes­ti­fied: “I as an ed­u­cated woman never used such kind of words. I was wait­ing for more than half an hour for an el­e­va­tor.

“Then, I found out that the Emi­rati woman and other mem­bers of the fam­ily have taken four el­e­va­tors.”

The trial was ad­journed un­til a later date.
